The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 phablet was announced at the end of last month, and today, we have word on its official availability to at least five different carriers in the US; namely AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and US Cellular by the time mid-November rolls around. If you are interested in pricing details, be prepared to be disappointed as that depends on the carrier whom you are going to hook up with, while retail availability will also be announced by the carriers themselves.
Since the Galaxy Note 2 is optimized to run on a 4G LTE network (as well as HSPA+ 42 networks), you can be sure that carriers that support 4G LTE will definitely want to have this under their fold to attract more customers. Just how much are you willing to pay for the Galaxy Note 2, or do you feel that your original Galaxy Note is good enough to last you for at least another year? It does seem, however, that the Galaxy Note 2 for Verizon will come with a locked bootloader.
We received word from US Cellular that they will be carrying the 16GB Titanium Gray model for $299.99, where it will come with an instant rebate if you place a pre-order, waiting for it to roll out in stores at the end of October, which is slightly earlier than the above mentioned general November release. Sprint will offer it in Marble White and Titanium Gray though. [Press Release]
